SUNDAY 23-11-08 

That was another cold night, though not as bad as the previous one. I’d also forgotten just how many noisy railroad trains pass through here during the night. Never mind, this would be our last night in a Wal-Mart car park.

After getting ready we vented the RV for the last time whilst out on the road. Every morning without fail we change the air inside the RV, opening roof vents and doors and turning on fans. 

At about 09:30 we set off for Alvarado near Fort Worth, a trip of about 250 miles. Before leaving we topped the tank up paying the least ever at $1.65 a gallon, less than half what we were paying on the last trip, which is just as well since the deteriorating exchange rate has added 25% to our costs. 

We decided as we approached the area that we’d go and see the folk at Motorhome Specialists www.mhsrv.com first thing tomorrow morning rather than bother them at the end of a busy day. We’ve booked in to the RV Ranch campground www.rv-ranch.com again which is where our last trip ended and this one began. We’re here for three nights before handing the vehicle over for storage or sale. The time will be spent packing cleaning etc. We would like to have handed it over on Thursday but that’s Thanksgiving Day and they’ll be shut so we’ll be making for a hotel having handed it over on Wednesday. 

LOCATION TONIGHT: RV Ranch, (now North Texas Jellystone Park) 2301 S Burleson Blvd, Burleson, Texas 76028 GPS: N32.494301 W97.284100).
